How to Start a Legal Separation in Arizona
Starting a Legal Separation in Arizona
A legal separation in Arizona is obtained in the same manner as a divorce. In both cases, a petition is filed with the Superior Court. That petition is served on the other spouse and the parties either submit a settlement agreement resolving all of the issues in the case or the issues are presented to the court at a trial, and the judge then issues final orders resolving the issues in the case. The procedural steps in an Arizona legal separation case are identical to the steps necessary to complete a divorce.
